Subject: Loving the reviews
Subject: Hot Show (Literally)
Subject: Wake up to find out that you are the Eyes of the World
Subject: Was there but missed it
Subject: Hot Hot Hot
I remember before they started Jerry saying “pray for Pigpen, he’s really sick, man” and also The fire Department spraying the crowd Down and passing people who had to get out of there over head to get them out. I Also remember a funny older guy hawking ice cream while we were sitting waiting for the gates to open saying cmon kids, help me get rid of this garbage. I also remember a group from Philly in front of the stage with a pretzel flag on a Long, long stick.
Funny what you remember after 48 years.

Subject: First full year
Subject: Allman's & Dead ? WoW
Happy 50th Grateful Dead !
Subject: Sun so hot, Clouds so low, Memories so great.
The soundboard tracks are good quality with a few blemishes. The Aud recording tracks are low quality but still much appreciated for the memories. The band was stoked. Jerry ripping out leads like a madman -- check out Cumberland Blues. Jams with the Allmans at the end are great.
Dying to hear the full soundboard. Whoever is hoarding it, please please post it.
Subject: where is the rest of this audience recording???
This taper might not have had the greatest equipment but he found a very sweet spot in the venue and listening to this recording nearly 45 years later (!) I can feel myself there, disintegrating into vibrating molecules. The Dead had a darn nice sound system in 1972 and this awesome Playin in the Band is your proof.
Just the right amount of crowd ambience, too. People are having a real good time.
Nobody likes a heat stroke but warm weather makes it easier rock and roll. The band was definitely in a groove here. Stella Blue sounds like it was written and performed in a different universe from the rest of the show. How did they do that?? There is a strong argument to made that this performance of Cumberland Blues is the "best" one. This early version of Mississippi 1/2 Step is very tightly arranged, even if Jerry still isn't complete sure about the lyrics ...
Minimal attempts are made to "harmonize" the multi-vocal parts, at least according to the usual Earth standards. Sincerity and earnestness above all.
Here's looking forward to an upload of the rest of the audience recording ... and will someone find the rest of the soundboard?
Subject: Great show, but hot
also, I maybe wrong, but didn't Bobby come on stage before the show with a dog(s) someone had left in a car... (Bobby had broken the windows out of the car and rescued the dog)
Subject: (9-13, 16-28)
And yes, the Stella Blue with Pig in Hollywood is superb.
2 star recording
5 star epicness
Subject: sound quality sucks
Can’t say 5 stars because, well, it just isn’t a 5 star show, but 3 seems unfair. Just some good old fashioned Grateful Dead.
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" July 16, 1972 at the Dillion Stadium, Hartford, CT, USA
The first 8 songs are audience quality recordings. They are kinda hard to listen to if not for the incredible performances.
Can you imagine all it took to get the DEAD on stage and stuff and then one button isn't pushed and all we get is a crappy recording from the audience...man.
From "Mexicali Blues" to almost the end of "Me and My Uncle" it's SOUNDBOARD quality.
"Mississippi Half Step" and "Sing Me Back Home" are audience quality recordings.
From "Casey Jones" to Johnny B. Goode the audio quality is Soundboard. There's some audio stuff happening during Sugar Magnolia, beware.
The GRATEFUL DEAD have to prove they can still rock n roll without Pigpen. They haven't left the R&B stuff behind yet. "Hey Bo Diddley" is a real treat.

Subject: on a sad note...
Subject: GREAT SHOW!!
Subject: At last, I've found it!
The next show I would attend would be Watkins Glen the following summer, at which point you could say I became a fully-fledged Deadhead. In fact, I can pinpoint the exact moment - it was the Friday night soundcheck when they played Sugaree - I can remember it like it was, like it was... well, like it was 33 years ago :-)
Anyway, this show was a big eye-opener and mind-opener for me. When the ABB guys came on with the Dead, it was really e-fucking-lectric. I'm listening to NFA-GDTRFB right now. Yow! Pretty snappy! Ol' Berry Oakley was crankin' away - good thing I really like bass!
PS - I'm giving it a 5 for the energy, for the ABB, and simply because it was my "first time" :-)
Subject: LOTTSA BASS!!
Subject: holy mutha o' gawd
Subject: Personal favorite
Subject: Great Show
Subject: Dead & Allman Bros
Subject: Listen to tape quality before downloading whole show
My advice is get the Jam with the Allmans. This is a hot jam and there are very few versions of Bo Diddley available.
Content of show 4
Quality of recordings 2
Subject: Dickey Betts and the Dead!!
This show is worth getting specifically to hear CD4. The jams between Dickey and Jerry on NFA*> GDTRFB*> Hey Bo Diddley* E: Johnny B. Goode
are nothing short of amazing!!
Until now, this show has been very undercirculated. If you like 6/10/73, then you'll love this show. The sound quality on this show is good especially considering its over 30 years old. This is well worth the download.
